MUST RESIST..............GURREN LAGGAN.......COMPARISON.

Well the trailer looked neat, all depends on the story (not TOO retread) and tone (will it do anything different?) though could be pretty good or pretty mediocre.

Animation is awesome as expected as is Mamoru Miyano's acting.

Thanks for the link. Must say i'm much preferring the designs in the manga, though that's just my personal preference.

First episode should be glorious going by that first chapter.

I don't really see any difference between the manga and animation design. It's cleaner and smoother in the manga because of the wonderful toning that creates an almost superflat impression, but that's something hard to keep in transition to animation unless Stardriver is directed by say, Hosoda. In other aspects, the art looks very concise to the animation style in my opinion.

But really, only one thing came to mind when reading the Stardriver chapter.

"StarDriver by Ashirogi Muto."

Just let yourself go. Don't take the show seriously at all, and be open minded, so you can expect anything to happen, and enjoy the ride.

My goodness, that has to be the worst Aqua Timez song used in an anime I've heard so far. I was gonna say perhaps the audio quality of the vid played a part but the way the singer drags the end of the lines during the verses is horrid and sounds lifeless. The song would have been alright if it weren't for- scratch that, I just got to the 3:00 mark, what the hell is that shit.

This does sound terrible, but then again I've yet to find an Aqua Timez song I like so I'm not surprised I hate this one as well. I simply loathe the vocalist's voice, his singing skills aren't enough to make up for it either...

That song doesn't sound fabulous as i expected
Really hoped that the TV version is slightly better than this one along with the animation sequence...that's where Bones usually excel for but not the song itself

This is the first time i've ever heard a song by Aqua Timez, and let's just say i hope it's the last.
